Co-founding partner John W. “Jack” McLuskey and Co-counsel H.T. Smith, at Florida’s Fourth District Court of Appeal in Palm Beach County following oral argument on Barnett v. DCF, a case involving significant issues related to the interpretation of the sovereign immunity statute’s aggregate damage caps. The Fourth District issued an Order on January 9, 2019 granting Barnett’s Motion to Certify the issue as a matter of “Great Public Importance” to the Florida Supreme Court. The news media has focused extensively on the Barnett case because of its legal implications to all Florida mass shooting events, including the tragedies at Parkland’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and Orlando’s Pulse Nightclub.
In its ruling the Fourth District Court of Appeal held: “Unfortunately, our state has experienced a number of high-profile mass shootings in the past several years, some of which have led to negligence complaints against state agencies. In our opinion in the instant case, we narrowly construed section 768.28(5), Florida Statutes (2010), to limit the sovereign immunity waiver to $200,000 (the statute was amended in 2016 to increase the cap to $300,000.00 for all claims or judgments) when there are multiple claims arising out of the same negligent act(s) committed by the state agency. However, we acknowledge that a broader reading of the statute could follow a per injury limitation.”
The case now moves to the Florida Supreme Court for consideration. Click here for link to recent Palm Beach Post article.
